[movies]A Beast at Bay - D W Griffith
A Beast at Bay was directed by D W Griffith in 1912. It stars Mary Pickford as the girl. These pictures were made so quickly, averaging two a week, that there are always errors that are allowed to pass. For example the tramp who tries to start a fight is almost off camera. But there are also regular advances in film technique. The cutting between the train and the cars, or the point of view shot when the hero looks through the binoculars.

While hardly a breakthrough in shattering racial stereotypes (Williams was required by the studio to wear "darkie" makeup), a black production with a black cast was unprecedented. The response was tepid and Williams did not appear in any movies after Fish...

Using standard red/blue-green 3D glasses, you can view this trip down Market Street filmed in 1906 as if you are actually there! Some of the amazing things you see in this version is the realization that at one point you are definitly going uphill, and the reflections in the water are quite startling. This was done in Adobe Premiere Elements 9, manually (i.e., not run through a pseudo-3D converter program.) It uses all the information in the original film to produce a true 3D effect.
